Coach Kelly Searsmith

Kelly Searsmith offers coaching for emerging adults with autism. She was diagnosed with autism late in life, following her son's diagnosis before the second grade. As her son became more independent and successful, Kelly began to mentor neurodiverse young adults, helping them to identify and pursue their goals in transitioning to adulthood. A lifelong academic with a bachelor's in psychology and doctorate in English, Kelly has more than thirty years of experience teaching traditional college-age students, but it is her shared experience with autism that gives her a unique perspective from which to help.
